I support Dodd-Frank rule 953(b).

There are so many issues that are so out of control lately...I simply don't have the time to pretend that you need a well-phrased message to "urge" you to politely.  I can't craft a careful and thoughtful coaxing message for the 300 critical issues that need to be resolved in the next ten days.

So how's about you just do what's right?  Please don't be so corrupt.  It's so boring and predictable.  There's not a person in government that has any trouble figuring out what would be the right thing to do.  So, pretend you're a kid, before you sold out and became an evil genius and just do what you know is right, in this and in all things.

I'd be really worried about someone taking offense at this if I believed anyone was actually going to read it. 


With lasting admiration,
